      Here is the link to Hoyle's
      essay:<br><br><a href=http://abob.libs.uga.edu/bobk/ccc/ce120799.html target=new>http://abob.libs.uga.edu/bobk/ccc/ce120799.html</a> <br> <br>Hoyle is an astronomer and not familiar
      in a working manner with the biological sciences or
      Maxwell laws. Therefore, he misses how CO2 is important
      to the biosphere and ultimately to electrical fields
      that enhance cirrus clouds.<br><br>Water indeed is the
      primary GHG. That we agree with. Ice crystals are key--I
      agree with that, too. But it is cirrus clouds that are
      the key, and how they are moved by electrical
      fields.<br><br>SSTs for sure cool during a glacial and that makes
      them less conductive. Further, there is less ocean
      water that can move and enhance cirrus. Yes, albedo
      changes occur with more ice on land too. But the primary
      change is in the hydrate fields. Why? Because with less
      terresphere to feedback rain, the hydrate fields shrink. Over
      huge periods of geo time, further, the slops of the
      shelves have adjusted to that reality as well. When ocean
      levels drop, the hydrate fields only exist on margins of
      the shelf where the slope is very inclined. That
      means relative to the surface there is less area being
      electrically insulated and hence more currrent flows into the
      earth rather than bouncing up or remaining in the
      oceans to move or enhance cirrus like a giant capacitor.

        On Feb 28th, the Interplanetary Magnetic Field
        swung to a strong south-pointing orientation. That,
        coupled with an elevated solar wind speed and density,
        triggered a G-1 class geomagnetic storm. The result was
        some high latitude aurora. See this link for a
        photgraph of aurora observed over Quebec :
        <a href=http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg target=new>http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg</a> . As of right now, there are 3 sunspot regions,
        namely 9839, 9842, and 9845, that appear to be capable
        of producing M-class flares. Regions 9839 and 9842
        are close to rotating out of view over the western
        limb of the solar disk. Sunspot region 9845, however,
        is close to the sun's central meridian. A rather
        large coronal hole is also approaching the sun's
        central meridian, and coming into an Earth-pointing
        position. High speed colar wind gusts are likely around the
        first of next week.<br><br>The current solar and
